Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. The many benefits of acupuncture include:

  • Pain reduction
  • Stress and tension relief
  • Increased energy levels
  • Stronger digestion
  • Relief from bad habits and addictions
  • Greater sense of overall health and well-being

Cosmetic Rejuvenation Acupuncture Microneedling

Cosmetic Rejuvenation Acupuncture is specifically targeted for cosmetic results.  The system includes body points to maintain overall harmony within the body, while focusing on the specified body area to be treated for cosmetic purposes.  The system was created by Denise Ellinger, L.Ac., who also co-created the Mei Zen acupuncture system. 

Usually targeted in the face and neck area, Cosmetic Rejuevenation Acupuncture can improve overall texture of the skin as it reduces wrinkles, or the severity of wrinkles, sagging skin around the eye and jawline, and crows feet around the eyes.  At the same time, being a true acupuncture treatment, it also helps to re-harmonize the free flow of Qi and Blood throughout the body.

The system requires 2 treatments a week for 5 weeks, for a total of 10 treatments.  Results vary according to age, skin conditions, and lifestyle.  Results may last up to 3 years with proper diet and maintenance.  Although Cosmetic Rejuvenation Acupuncture is not a substitute for surgery, many people consider this option as it is minimally invasive, with virtually no recovery time or pain and  at a fraction of the cost.

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is performed using a device called a microneedling pen. This tool contains multiple needles that pulse at a very rapid rate. In the same manner as acupuncture, it creates tiny micro-traumas in the top layers of the skin. As a natural part of the healing process, the production of collagen is stimulated which aid in plumping the skin and reducing wrinkles. Generally 4 to 6 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are required for maximum results. Various werums, based on individual skin type and needs, may be added to enhance treatment results.

Nanoneedling is performed using the same device, but at a much shallower penetration, which helps with exfoliation and skin cell turnover. Nannoneedling may be used weekly between microneedling sessions.

Each of the above treatments may be further enhanced by adding Red Light Therapy weekly. Specific wavelengths of red light penetrate the skin to promote bloodflow and aid in healing. Red Light Therapy is also used for other conditions, including pain.

Medical Qigong

Medical Qigong is an ancient Chinese medical practice that can be performed by the practitioner to aid in healing, as well as practiced by the patient to promote and maintain health.  It combines slow movements, conscious breathing, and focused mental attention to strengthen and enhance the flow of Qi (energy) throughout your body. Rather than addressing only your symptoms (as Western medicine tends to do), Medical Qigong addresses your ailment at its very source by healing your entire being — mentally, emotionally and physically.


Cupping has been a part of Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years. It relieves aches and pains, improves circulation, and also helps with respiratory and digestive issues. It is done by  simply placing a specialized "cup" onto specific points on your body, and then using suction to gently draw your skin up into the cup. It doesn't hurt — it simply draws fresh blood to that area of your body, which facilitates the cleansing and strengthening of your Qi (energy). The end result is a greater overall sense of health and well-being.


Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing and health. Moxibustion has been used for healing purposes throughout Asia for thousands of years. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of Qi (energy), and enhance your overall vitality and health.

Among other benefits, a landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998 found that 75.4% of women suffering from breech presentations before childbirth had fetuses that rotated to the normal position after receiving moxibustion at an acupuncture point on the bladder meridian.

Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis

Two of the most common questions that patients ask about Chinese Medicine is: "Why does my practitioner check my pulse?" and "Why does my practitioner ask to see my tongue?" Tongue and Pulse diagnosis is actually one of the most complex and important diagnostic techniques we use in Chinese Medicine. Through feeling and evaluating your pulse, we obtain an accurate diagnosis of your overall constitution, Qi (energy) flow, and internal organ system health, among other things. We use this, along with other information you provide, to formulate a highly effective and individualized treatment plan for your specific needs.

Gua Sha

Although Gua Sha is an ancient healing technique used by Chinese Medicine practitioners for thousands of years, it is relatively unknown in the West. It is recognized throughout Asia as a highly effective treatment for chronic pain conditions, stress, fatigue, and a host of other ailments.

First, Gua Sha oil is applied to a specific meridian (energy pathway) on your body. I then use a smooth round-edged object (such as a spoon) to apply short brisk strokes to that area. This creates red patches of skin (called "Sha"), detoxifying your blood and restoring the healthy flow if Qi (energy) to the area. There is no pain involved, and the Sha will fade in 2 to 3 days. But the sense of health and vitality you experience from it will last much longer.

Tui Na

Tui Na is an ancient form of bodywork that is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I use a variety of pressures and strokes along the meridians (energy pathways) of your body to both relax your muscles and also stimulate the flow of energy throughout your body. By treating both the physical (musculature) and energetic (Qi) levels of your body at the same time, I can achieve results far beyond what you’d receive from a conventional massage therapy session.


Esogenic Colorpuncture, developed by Peter Mandel of Germany, is a non-needle therapy using the power of light. His system was developed based in part on the work of experimental Physists Fritz Popp and David Bohm as well as others. Using knowledge from ancient healing therapies including acupuncture and ayurveda, as well as naturopathy and modern biophysics, a powerful yet gentle new modality was created.

Therapy may include colored crystal lights of a specific wavelength, developed by Mandel and specially made for this purpose by Swarovski to his specifications.

Most people find these treatmens not only extremely relaxing and theraputic, but helpful in addressing a wide range of complaints.
